The Housing Services Division is responsible for creating and preserving affordable housing in the community. Morgan Hill’s commitment to affordable housing is a cornerstone of the community and City. The city’s award-winning affordable housing programs provides creative and innovative ways for residents to purchase homes. In addition to ownership, attractive, high quality and affordable rental opportunities are a vital part of the mix. Many of the Morgan Hill Redevelopment Agency (RDA) assisted rental developments now stand instead of blighted and dilapidated rental units. The RDA has assisted the City to bring the community’s vision to life, with a comprehensive approach that touches everyone.
The City does not manage any of the affordable housing developments within the City limits, nor does it maintain any waiting lists. Please refer to the Housing Resources Guide for individual apartment development contact information. The Housing Authority of the County of Santa Clara administers the Section 8 voucher program and the waiting list is currently closed. For information on the voucher program, please contact the Housing Authority at 408-275-8770.
The City has an active Below Market Rate program for affordable home ownership. There are almost 500 homes in the program and new units are being added on a yearly basis.
